Yellow bike runs straight on from the instrumental album opener Sunrise seamlessly, and has really creative honest lyrics. This album has been 15 years in the making, which is literally longer than my lifetime, so I hope it has been worth it. Yellow Bike has the feel of bubbly childhood in suburban America. Pure bliss. Clean Up gives the listener an exact idea of the life of the writer and lead singer David Bazan. Track 4 Powerful Taboo, I don't feel the lyrics really made the point the writers ... read more

Give a Little is really nice and sets a nice theme for the album, and let's you know exactly what to expect for the rest of Heard it in a past life. Give a little is catchy and sounds great, production wise. Overnight is catchier too, and it's much more pop than I was expecting from the singles and other reviews. Honest Lyrics, Good Music. Her voice doesnt sound like anybody elses, and the words are very Maggie Rogers, making it a good track for the debut album. The Knife is very much all the ... read more

First impressions are that this was a great choice for the opening track on Merton's debut LP. It has good, cool, catchy music and instantly memorable words.

The chorus is quite nice, but a little less exciting the chorus might suggest. It picks back up towards the end. No ... read more

Die Sage is a little different to the other dance albums I have listened to in 2019, and I think I prefer it. It doesnt sound like I could have made it, it has actually interesting production and sound effects, and seeing as the opening track is 9 minutes long, it gives it a long time to develop. If you skipped every 3 minutes in this song, it could sound like you were listening to different songs, but somehow they blend together to make an impressive piece of music. Lobotomie is less ... read more

First impressions are a nice guitar sound and technique, and nice but slightly quiet words. I also very much like the album cover, as it has me asking myself questions.
Birthday Party is a subtle but confident indie song. It doesnt jump off the page as indie, and sort of fits into funk I would say. Again, Track 2 - Orca, the words are to quiet for the music. I think so far the only weakness is the production (which after a bit of digging I have found Yoodoo Park does himself). Apart from the ... read more
